At the recent National Numeracy Network conference, the following chapter from a book on mathematics pathways came to my attention. It is a quick and highly informative read. The authors help put Quantitative Reasoning and Mathematics for Liberals Arts courses into perspective. Now 18 states have Quantitative Reasoning courses (even though some fly under the radar with name like "College Mathematics' or "Math for Liberal Arts").Gaze, E., & Richardson, C. (2019). Content trends in Quantitative Reasoning courses. Chapter 3 in R. Hartzler & R. Blair (Eds.), Emerging issues in mathematics pathways: Case studies, scans of the field, and recommendations. Charles A. Dana Center at The University of Texas at Austin. https://dcmathpathways.org/sites/default/files/resources/2019-04/Emerging-Issues-in-Mathematics-Pathways_Chapter3.pdfOn a related note, increasing, statewide course transfer for gateway mathematics course is improving. It is becoming seamless across public two-year and four-year higher ed institutions in Ohio via Ohio Transfer 36.
